Sy Scholfield quotes "Landgraf Philipp von Hessen genannt 'der Dritte' oder auch 'von Butzbach'" by Philipp Alexander Ferdinand Walther (Darmstadt: Heinrich Brill, 1866), p. 2: "Landgraf Philipp war der dritte Sohn des Landgrafen Georgs I, aus dessen erster Ehe mit Magdalena, geb. Gräsin zur Lippe. Er erblickte das Licht der Welt am 26. Dez. 1581 Morgens zwischen 5 und 6 Uhr."

Translation: Landgrave Philipp was the third son of Landgrave Georg I from his first marriage with Magdalena, née Countess of Lippe. He first saw the light of day on 26 December 1581 between 5 and 6 o'clock in the morning.
